How Do I Submit?
Submit your essay using this form. You need to write an abstract to accompany your piece of coursework. An abstract is a concise summary of the content of your paper. It should be between 100-300 words long. This is an important part of your submission and will be assessed by the judging panel of your category.
The entire judging process is anonymous. Please ensure that you do not include any of your personal details (name, university/college, name of lecturer/supervisor, student mnumber) on your paper. Failure to remove these personal details from your coursework document which you upload will result in disqualification.
You can submit a maximum of 3 papers/projects. These papers can be submitted across any of the 2014 categories.
